MONTICELLO, N.Y. -- Multiple people are being questioned after Wednesday's stabbing in Monticello.
It started out as an argument between teenagers over a boy and escalated into a chaotic stabbing incident involving two families and multiple victims.
A mother and daughter, 45-year-old Dawn Tyler and 18 year old Khadijah Stewart, carted off to jail. Both charged with assault after 19-year-old Nischelle Jackson and her 14-year-old brother were stabbed on Cottage Street Wednesday night.
Jackson remains at Albany Medical Center with multiple stab wounds.
"Most of the injuries are on the left side of her body including the left side of her face close to the eye area, the left arm and the left hip," said Monticello Police Chief Robert Mir.
Police believe it began as a dispute between the teens over a young man and quickly escalated. Officers say Stewart showed up with her mother and brother to Jackson's home threatening the group with knives or say carrying knives.
"It's going to change all of their lives forever," said Mir.
Members of the victim's family are outraged by the violence.
"This is something that shouldn't have came this far. Everyday teenagers have fights with each other but when you get parents that's coming in and older siblings with weapons and they went into their home and they stabbed them up on their property, what more can you do? This girl is supposed to graduate in 6 weeks," said Sheila Jackson, the victim's grandmother.
Police say they plan file additional charges as more information becomes available. They are still looking for Khadijah Stewart's younger brother who they also believed was involved with the fight.
